[Sticky] Migrate to wpForo - Go2wpForo Tool
Go2wpForo is designed to allow you migrate forums, topics, posts and users from other WordPress forum plugins to wpForo. We're working hard to improve this tool. Currently it supports these migrations:
- bbPress to wpForo
- Simple:Press to wpForo
- Asgaros to wpForo
- AnsPress to wpForo
- DW Q&A to wpForo
- WP Q&A to wpForo
- phpBB to wpForo
- MyBB to wpForo
- SMF to wpForo
This tool installs like any other plugin for WordPress:
- Downloaded Go2wpForo zip file.
- Navigate to Dashboard > Plugins > Add new and upload addon ZIP file and activate.
- Once the plugin is active, navigate to WordPress Dashboard > Go2wpForo admin page and choose the forum you'd like to migrate from. Then click on Start Migration button...
bbPress (extra tools)
Attachments - If you've used GD bbPress Attachments plugin for file attachments please read this support topic: https://wpforo.com/community/bbpress/migrate-bbpress-attachments-to-wpforo/
URL Redirection - After migration from bbPress to wpForo you can redirect bbPress forum and topic URLs to according wpForo forum and topics using Redirect2wpForo plugin: https://wpforo.com/community/bbpress/bbpress-to-wpforo-url-301-redirection/
Yes it is. You can find it on the first page of this topic:
Just a quick note, for Asgaros forum it doesn't migrate the topics only the forums/categories etc.

How do I get my attachments migrated from SimplePress to WPForo ?
I originally had my forum running on Simplemachines SMF2.0.15 and then used
the SimplePress importer to import the SMF importer to get it to Wordpress SimplePress...
That worked, but I did not get the attachments into SimplePress... Or do I need first to buy these Attachment Viewer Plugins to see the attachments ?
What is the best Method to go from SMF to SimplePress and then to WPForo with also getting
all attachments moved to WPForo ?
Many thanks in advance. Regards, Stefan.
Please don't duplicate questions in different topics just follow to this topic:
Can I import from a Lsoft system into WP Foro? Even if it is a searchable archive that would be ok.
how do I "clean" the data left by bbpress after migration to WPForo? Any sql command for this? 🤔
Yes you can. Just backup all tables, then read this doc:
